Answering The Call of the Wild and Comfort in Zambia This week our Wild Zambia Safari was featured in the New York Times as one of "10 African Adventures Answering the Call of the Wild and Comfort."  Here's what the New York Times had to say:  "For travelers seeking a more active safari than most drive-focused itineraries, Wildland Adventures has introduced a 10-day Wild Zambia Safari that includes long hikes and passage by canoe as well as four-wheel drive safari vehicles in visits to South Luangwa and Lower Zambezi National Parks. Trips start at Victoria Falls and are largely divided between two remote but comfortable wilderness camps. Travelers will walk the five miles between them (with luggage shuttled forward), tracking buffalo, giraffe and elephant en route. The adventurous can add an optional night of camping under the stars in South Luangwa to the itinerary." Our Wild Zambia Safari is truly a one-of-a-kind adventure. Wildland founders, Kurt and Anne Kutay, scouted...
Breathtaking and Idyllic- The Machu Picchu Lodges Trek was Amazing! Kim and a group of 11 friends just returned from their adventures in Peru and had a fabulous time on our Machu Picchu Mountain Lodges Trek. Here are some of her favorite memories: “The Machu Picchu Mountain Lodges Trek along the Salkantay Trail was amazing! Loved the diversity of the terrain along the way. The food and accommodations were outstanding. Liked the privacy and relative luxury of the lodges. The guides, staff, cook, etc. were all so professional and attentive to our every need. Wilfredo was a wonderful tour guide--so knowledgeable, attentive and focused on making the most of the trip for all of us. Danny was a lot of fun. Something that really stood out was the lunch in the tent (in the rain) after reaching the top of the Salkantay Trail--what a fun and much appreciated surprise. Loved Santos and Victor who did the traditional blessing at the lake. My...

Enchanted by Adventure in the Brazilian Amazon Falling asleep to claps of thunder and waking up to howler monkeys calling in the canopy outside my window this August were just fragments of the beautiful dream I stepped into while spending almost 3 weeks in the Brazilian Amazon. Each morning, as the sun slowly reared its mighty head over the lush horizon, I woke up to run along miles of trails that wound in and out of the exotic jungle. Running before the intense heat of midday meant comingling with families of squirrel monkeys, dodging sleepy caimans and watching majestic white herons take flight. During the day we ascended ropes into the dense canopy to gain a new perspective from the tops of ancient Samauma trees and swam with powerful pink river dolphins. We paddled in the quiet off shooting rivers and lakes as the sun started to set and watched as the Milky Way painted the sky....
Cultural encounters were the surprise of our Tanzania Safari When the Kaplan family traveled to Tanzania on our Serengeti Family Safari in June they knew that they were in for some great wildlife. What was unexpected was the people that they met and the cultures that they experienced along the way. "The entire trip was fabulous. The highlight was actually the cultural encounters that we had. I expected the animal part of the safari but our visit with the Bushman was beyond anything I could imagine and my kids loved playing soccer, volleyball, and frisbee with the locals. Our guide Dominic was unbelievable. He was incredibly knowledgeable but was also a truly amazing person. He kept everyone engaged and let things be spontaneous, making time to add to our itinerary where beneficial. We LOVED him! My favorite experience was hunting with the Bushman and learning about their culture. We also had a great interaction with some women in the...
